easyJet expands Italian network

4th Apr 2007

easyJet has launched the first of two new
Italian routes from its largest base, London Gatwick Airport.The daily service is to
the beautiful city of Pisa.

Gatwick is now the airline’s main gateway to Italy with a choice of six airports;
Milan (both Malpensa and Linate), Olbia, Pisa, Rome and Venice, soon to increase to
seven with the introduction of a route to Palermo, Sicily on 4 July 2007.

Located in Western Tuscany, Pisa is known throughout the world for its famous
Leaning Tower, but there is so much more to Pisa than just this striking landmark. A
city full of beautiful, historical monuments and stunning architecture dating back
hundreds of years, Pisa retains much of its medieval appearance.  It is a perfect
city break destination or starting point for exploring the regions of Tuscany and

Paul Cable, UK Market Manager said: 

“Italy is fast becoming one of the favourite European destinations for Brits, the
addition of Pisa and Palermo later this summer means easyJet will operate to a
choice of 10 Italian airports from across the UK, seven of which are served from
Gatwick.  The demand for services to Pisa and the Tuscany region is clear as sales
are strong and the airline expects to carry more than 100,000 passengers on this
route in the first 12 months.


These new routes will give travellers the opportunity to explore the fantastic
Italian countryside, historic cities, cultural centres and experience the wonderful
food from just £24.99.
